Microsoft Corp. is purchasing energy from Orsted‘s Old 300 Solar Center in Fort Bend County, Texas. The 430 MW AC solar energy center is expected to come online in Q2 2022.
“Microsoft has ambitious sustainability objectives for their Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions, and we’re thrilled to support their targets,” says Vishal Kapadia, Orsted Onshore’s senior vice president and chief commercial officer. “Given the strong alignment in focus on emission reductions between our two organisations, I’m excited about our continued collaboration.”
“On our journey to 100 percent renewable energy, we recognize that innovation and collaboration are fundamental in how we fight against climate change,” states Adrian Anderson, senior director of renewable energy at Microsoft. We’re grateful for our collaboration with Orsted to deliver renewable energy in ERCOT and look forward to continued progress towards a net-zero carbon future.”
